that. >> money from a u.s. defense contract is now in the hands of the taliban. the a u.s. military task force now believes that part of a $2 billion contract for troops transportation was diverted through a network of african criminals, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation. the source says it appeared that some of the money went for protection through areas controlled by the insurgents. >>> just one day after new york saw its first gay weddings, conservative groups filed a lawsuit challenging the state's same sex marriage law. they argued supporters violated state procedure to push that law through. new york is the sixth state along with the district of columbia to allow gay couples to marry. >>> in oregon, a congressman accused of unwanted sexual advances toward a young woman will not sooem seek recollection. representative david wu is under pressure to step down. an aide says wu is considering all options. jessica brady with the capitol hill newspaper "roll call" says wu's accuser is the daughter of a campaign donor. >> we know that she is about 18 years old,
here. >> that's my question. can pakistan's military take on the taliban and militancy without u.s. money and resources, reza? >> reporter: well, look. they have a big army. 600,000 soldiers. it's one of the biggest armies of the world. they are not the best trained army, not the most proficient when it comes to fighting and insurgency. fighting that the taliban, that they've needed the help of the u.s. in the past, but, again, they're saying they don't need the help anymore. they're going to continue to fight without the u.s.' help. but it doesn't square with previous statements made in the past. previous demands for the u.s. to give them more money, give them resources, claims that they need help. now they say they don't need help. i think this is gamesmanship and i think all of this really underscores a troubled relationship, but i think what's important to point out is though the relationship is hurting there is no indication that it will end. both countries realize that they need one another so i think there are indications that it will stagger forward despite the troubles.

of the taliban. the question is how could something like this happen? well, it seems pretty clear that keeping track of subcontractor dollars even in washington is difficult. in afghanistan, however, it's a different story. trucking companies often deal with very davis situations in this country. they'll often subcontract out to smaller companies which will further subcontract to smaller entities in the country. those groups will often pay security firms or local groups for safe passage. what we've learned, however, is that some of those payments have funneled in between travel groups and has made their way into the hands of insurgents. manisha? >> david, i know this is an investigation right now but is there any talk on the ground about what you can do about a problem like this? i imagine it must be very difficult. >> it certainly comes as a great surprise to many people who were not aware of this. authorities that we've spoken to say that they've completely and radically revamped the system, allocating now 40 different companies to sort of lessen the degree to which the united states is reli

in afghanistan is to basically end al qaeda and get the taliban under control so it doesn't go back to what it was in the past and to create a stability there so they don't threaten us in the future. so that doesn't become again the breeding ground for a tax on america the way it was in 2001. we're not there yet. afghanistan is a state of chaos and confusion, not in a state where we can honestly say in good conscience that we've put it in a situation where we don't need to be there in order to protect ourself. and here's what i think has been a big lack of leadership. somebody's got to explain to the american people that we need to be in that region of the world for the indefinite future. without time limits. far more effective would be you put in the truth, you don't tell anybody when you're going to leave. we leave when he accomplish our objective. >> a final domestic question. in the next couple weeks the first same-sex marriages will take place legally in new york. you have always said that you were for civil unions but that you thought marriage was between a man and a woman. >> and i s
they had the harboring government of the taliban? >> i couldn't agree more with michael. and i'd actually go a step further to say not only is he right that they have now expanded geographically and have multiple launch points for operations but if we step back and look at that map you'll see it lays over very nicely with what we're witnessing with the arab spring. we're also witnessing a dysfunctional nato operation both in afghanistan as well as in libya that leads to openings for al qaeda there. as michael points out, they in each one of those countries are seeing instability that can be exploited. and let's step back and look at what we learned from the bin laden treasure trove, which is essentially that al qaeda was much more centrally controlled than many in the intelligence community thought and i thought and many in the chertoff group. but what it shows is the old guard, what we'll call central a.q., al qaeda, was basically trying to force the young guard to follow their past performance, which is to do these long, multiyear planning attacks for very iconic operations with catastr

. the threat is not from the taliban, but apparently from their own government . >> he held me like this. >> it happened in seconds. >> where did they hit you. >> punches to the gut from four attacks. a few baton whacks and the kicks to the body. >> i was thinking about -- that i'm going to die today. >> the victim of the attack was the pakistani journalist. his attackers were not street thugs they had police uniforms on and pulled him over. >> they said if you want to be a hero, we will make you a hero. >> and an example. >> it's not clear who roughed him up, but he is feeting over a string of attacks against journalists that raised a troubling question. are the spy agents? they told the british paper, the guardian he was kidnapped and beaten after he wrote a report about illegal arrests by intelligence agencies, whoever beat him a second time didn't like that they made him look bad. >> the last time, they threatened to wrap my body. under these circumstances, what can i do? >> his beating came less than three weeks after the still unsolved murder of another pakistani journalist. for ye
